Maurice Jones-Drew Picking Up The Offense Quickly

Now that his holdout has ended, Jacksonville Jaguars star running back Maurice Jones-Drew has had to take a crash course in learning new offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski's philosophy. But according to a Big Cat Country report, Bratkowski has been impressed with the speed in which Jones-Drew has picked things up:

"It's good to have him here, I am really impressed with him. He's a very intelligent young man, and he picks things up really quick. I really like his personality. A great personality, so this is my first time around him but it's been really fun."

Jones-Drew isn't expected to start the game on Sunday, but if he keeps progressing, he'll be back in the starting lineup in no time.
